Extream difficulty in absorbing (boring) information

Grimghast (@Grimghast) 8 years, 1 month ago

So I find for the most part the way my brain works is one of two modes where it comes to my ability to learn and retain information, I am either utter obsessed and know every detail, due to finding the subject matter fascinating, or utterly disinterested and even though it may be a group of knowledge that is vital to my every day current existence, example: new boring but very vital work procedure changes, or a subject I care little about.

I find with the latter, particularly with reading or someone speaking to convey said data that my brain literally rebels and goes into full adhd mode and I have to struggle with everything I have to actually retain anything. Like the words on the page seem to project their own boring force field of boggle. It’s truly frustrating and has been a serious road block from time to time.

Anyone else struggle with this type of thing?

@grimghast, yea, that was the story of almost all of my college experience. I think it’s a sign that you, and I, should study and work on something else.

Boredom is a distant relative of pain, when you’re bored, your brain is telling you to change something, to stop doing something. It’s telling you your true interests lie elsewhere.

@grimghast, I am the exact same! However I find that if a lecturer talks about personal experience, they are more enthusiastic and engage me more! It makes me remember it! Try applying that to things you struggle to remember, relate it in some way (even if completely bizarre)
